Pros:Flawless, fast, VERY PRODUCTIVE, great software bundle, awesome support
Cons:Wish it was free
The Bottom Line: OS X is the operating system that everyone else tries to copy. It's functionality, speed, stability, and overall productivity is absolutely indispensable! A TRUE OPERATING SYSTEM!
OS X Tiger is unbelievable! It does nearly all daily tasks automatically. Also, with features such as the spelling correction, dictionary, and awesome search features, Mac OS X Tiger is the best operating system you can get! Those type of features help to convey your thoughts and ideas to appear in an intelligent way vs. any Windows OS. OS X Tiger never crashes, is very fast, and is very intuitive so you don't have to "learn" it. Other features such as Spotlight, always helps me find a file very quickly. The keyboard shortcuts are very intuitively laid out and just make sense. I think one of the best features (and what really sold me on Tiger) is the Dashboard. The Dashboard is non-obtrusive & is so easy to make it appear/disappear. I love how you can customize is constantly and add content (widgets).

The included software is indispensable. It's not the typical junk that you end-up just uninstalling, it's actually very useful software - all of it. This includes the iLife suite - software you use every day for graphics, music, DVD, and creativity software. Again, you don't have to "learn" it, you just use it. For example, you just "use" your TV remote - I doubt you read the manual because it just makes sense in its operation. And, if you purchase any additional software for OS X Tiger like iWork or Microsoft Office, it works flawlessly with the operating system (OS X Tiger).
NOTE: Typical file sizes are also smaller, so your hard drive space goes further. For example, Microsoft Office takes up about 350MB on my Mac, while on the PC, it takes up more like 1.4GB.
Currently, I am running OS X 10.4.10 (latest Tiger update) and am very pleased with the flawless operation, stability, and performance that Apple has promised. Updates are brainless, and generally fix future problems that you would have encountered. Compare that to Windows, for example. Usually you have the same problem, over and over, and Microsoft even updates the software... But it still doesn't work correctly.
The best part about it (any Apple product) is the support. You can call one (1) phone number or email for ANYTHING (problem, question)! This includes hardware, software, and the general use of your Mac. Awesome!
